My son is a weightlifter and into nutrition. He recommended Nature's Best: Perfect Isopure Whey Protein Isolate Its "Pure Unflavored Protein With Zero Additives!"
I order it from bodybuilding.com its like $40 and lasts me over a month. I usually use one scoop per day in my drink. My smoothie consists of a big handful of kale, one banana, scoop of protein, then a handful of frozen fruit (my favorite is from Costco Wawona Festival Blend Mixed Fruit) then I pour in water to fill line. Its delicious, low calorie and really fills me up. I've been using it for about 5 months.

Thank you for the tips! I bought more baby spinach, and will stick with that, and romaine for now. It's after 8pm, and I just came home with the Nutri-Bullet and groceries. And I forgot the darned coconut. Poop. Maybe I'll run out for it tomorrow. And the moment I'm over-heated and wiped out.

I also meant to tell you, I have created a meal time for Nutri Blasts. It is a replacement for either breakfast lunch or dinner. Right now it's dinner. And I have Bob's green protein drink in my groupings on my nutrition guide.

I would think that if you are supplementing protein powder, because you are not getting enough protein it would be ok to add them to one of your Nutri Blasts. Maybe like a breakfast one, so you get a good start to your day. It's hard when a person is on the go, to sit down to a breakfast, so I would plan it ahead, and stick it in a traveling mug, and drink it on the way, or at work. Bob Harper has a great green drink for starting a day.
My Recipes: Bob’s Green Drink
Hey everyone here is a recipe for my HEALTHY green drink, which can be used as a meal replacement! It is a BIG drink and could be considered 2 servings. Women who are watching their calories can cut the supplements in half, which drops the total calories down to 289.
MY Green Drink (398 calories)
Add all ingredients (listed below) to a blender and blend until combined.
1 Cup Fresh Kale (30 calories) 1 Cup Frozen Spinach (30 calories) 1/2 Cup Blueberries (35 calories) ½ Small Banana (40 calories) 1/2 Cup Frozen Pineapple (45 calories) 20 oz. H20
I would cut it in half. I still need to find maca powder. Amazon has it, but they also have ridiculous shipping charges too. I would try it for breakfast, which I am going to since I don't eat any boxed cereals. The frozen makes it more slushy, but since I use the NB I let my fruits or veges thaw just a bit.
I am excited for you, can't wait to hear about your first blast! Btw don't use kale until you get use to green. I did first off, and about gagged. Since then I have been using organic baby spinach. But will use kale and swiss chard soon.
